I would go this way as well, I figure Okposo could fish out pucks for Tavares and Moulson
Between Comeau -1 and Okie -2, I think we leave them at the bottom for now. Give Grabs some time with JT. I think Comeau and JT should be put together to get Comeau in line. with Grabs. That would be deadly.
Have Okie with Moulson, Reasoner. That might open the ice for those 2.
Frans with his best game ytd...Bailey a bit better too.
solid play by DiPietro though he always seems to be one step away from disaster...he played well though seemed like he was really trying to not overplay the puck. Just keep doing that and keep boneheaded plays to a minumum. Can't fault him really on any of the goals against. Was funny though at the end EVERYONE knows what he was thinking on that empty net.
PAP good for him. Does not belong on first line and I'm ok with him as third liner.
What a game by Martin. He was all over the place - like every game he has played in so far this year. Ok with him on third line but the guy needs to be playing more minutes.
Noticed KO even managed to get a shot on net - not wide by three feet!
He started the play on the Martin goal? He made at least two smart plays with the puck in his own end. Bailey has been good the last 4 games. People can **** on him for the low production, but watch what he's doing on the ice. He played 11:50 and was effective. Not sure what more people are expecting. If he's playing smart and hard, then he'll improve (and he has been for the last little while.)
More on topic, I'm glad they switched up the lines. Not exactly the combos I would have chosen, but we finally put some speed up with Tavares to get to loose pucks. Battles along the boards and getting to loose pucks was the problem with our previous 5-on-5 arrangements.
I really hope we find a way to get Martin more ice. He brings much more to the table than we're allowing for. (Would have liked him to have had a major role at the Bridge developing that, but while he has the confidence going, let's get him some more ice.)
the fact that it was WASHINGTON makes it awesome to me. sure i was happy to get off the schneid, but beating that team, wow.
i love frans and martin. you know what you're going to get with them two every night.
i wish kyle could get his head out of his --- more. he's got skill, but seems to be turning dumb. i hope this shakeup shakes him and comeau up, not to mention bailey.
